    Default How to autologin / auto startx / auto booting

    make you not have to type startx every time you boot, it goes right to desktop.
    Using this on backtrack 4 Pre Final persistent changes.


    Code:
    nano /root/.bash_profile
    enter:
    Code:
    startx
    ctrl+o #WriteOut (o=letter, NOT a zero)
    enter #save
    ctrl+x #Exit

    all done!! reboot and try it out.

    you can put all kind of things you want to autostart in this file, like me, I have put "start-network" and "wicd-client" so that I have working network every time I boot.

    cool thanks, i was trying to figure how to do this..

    But i want mine to auto start with root already being the user name..and it just asks for the password.

    and after password is entered it auto starts startx.

    Little correction for you,
    in nano use Ctrl not shift. to save ctrl+o
    Grammar takes to long.

    I´m not sure I understand your question, what you mean with text mode?
    This guide makes you login to kde/desktop without you doing anyting, just press power and one minute later you are presented with desktop without the need to type startx

    I think he's asking or wondering how this would work if he logs in using the gui login.
